    “The world runs on individuals pursuing their separate interests. The great achievements of civilization have not come from government bureaus. Einstein didn’t construct his theory under order from a bureaucrat. Henry Ford didn’t revolutionize the automobile industry that way. In the only cases in which the masses have escaped from the kind of grinding poverty you’re talking about, the only cases in recorded history, are where they have had capitalism and largely free trade.

    If you want to know where the masses are worst off, it’s exactly in the kinds of societies that depart from that. So that the record of history is absolutely crystal clear, that there is no alternative way so far discovered of improving the lot of the ordinary people that can hold a candle to the productive activities that are unleashed by the free-enterprise system.” --Milton Friedman

    CARPE DIEM: Milton Friedman Responds to Obama

    Every re-distributive economy is an inhumane shithole, every single one of them. It's so fucking bad they have to build walls to keep anybody with a brain from fleeing. But that's the exact system embraced and adored by the "American" Left. They love a system that has a 100% Guaranteed fail rate and while they're living in the #1 economy in the world.

    Insanity. Absolute fucking insanity.

    Whether he's dead or not, it's obvious that his words live and remain true...

    Yeah...It's almost as though he knew an insolent Marxist shitheel like Boiking was going to come along a few decades later, to make his commentary prescient. :lol:

    Only on a personal basis, when it comes to a business you rely on other people to patronize your establishment or service.

    The dead not only talk to right wing crazies, but they also show up to vote (R) at every election.
